Milk choices are such a hot topic - it can lead to confusion and overwhelm as there are many options to choose from!

What is right for one individual may not be beneficial to another - best to be informed and empowered with knowledge so you can make the best choice for your family!

On today’s episode, Dr. Elana interviews Haley Scheich to review the ins and outs of milk choices!

Haley is the co-founder of My SuperHero Foods, a wellness brand that teaches families about the powers of real foods and the importance of what we put in our bodies.  

In this episode, Haley and Dr. Elana share their personal journeys with experimenting with dairy-free to then starting to incorporate dairy into their diets.  As moms and health nuts, we are here to help break down the pros and cons, ins and outs to meet you where you are at!

Topics Discussed:

  • How big pharma funds most of our food supply

  • The difference between conventional cow milk and raw milk

  • The many benefits of raw milk

  • How to access good quality safe milk

  • The difference between cow milk and goat milk

  • How to choose a healthy nut milk

  • Ways to make homemade nut milk

  • Why staying away from oat milk may be a good idea!

Show Notes:

Haley Scheich is the cofounder of My SuperHero Foods, a wellness brand that teaches families about the powers of real foods and the importance of what we put in our bodies.  She’s a working mama of 3 kids and 3 step kids, ages 2 to 18. She’s married to Dr. Tarek Pacha, her best friend and co-founder.

Haley spent 17 years in the healthcare industry before creating My SuperHero Foods. Her first 9 years were spent at Pfizer. There she learned that so many chronic medicines aren’t needed if you change the way you eat. Food can be the real medicine. She later spent another 8 years in bioinformatics, specifically urologist cancers, and genomics. 

After being introduced to yoga and healing her own body through nutrition, she discovered a disconnect between the healthcare and nutrition industries and the strength of food as medicine. Shortly after, she dropped out of her Masters in Nutrition program and began a decade-long journey of self-education. 

Haley and Tarek co-authored the children’s books, My SuperHero Foods and My SuperHero Sleep as well as the breakfast cookbook Sunny Side Up and The Ultimate Guide to Avoiding Seed Oils in Your Kitchen. They also created mysuperherofoods.com, a free robust resource to help raise awareness about the power of whole foods and wellness. You can find her on Instagram @mysupherherofoods, where she continues to educate parents and caregivers on the importance of real food for all kids.

Steph interviews Chelsea Bodie, co-founder of the Mama Psychologists, to discuss ways moms can navigate anxiety and intrusive thoughts. They discuss common fears moms have when it comes to their kids and how to navigate those fears. You’ll learn when “common” becomes concerning and how to get the support you need to feel more at ease and less alone.  

Topics Discussed:

  • Unique ways burnout shows up in moms and kids

  • Common concerns moms have

  • Strategies to navigate anxious thoughts

  • When it’s more than “new mom worries”

Show Notes:

We are Chelsea & Caitlin, founders of MamaPsychologists. We have built a community of over 590,000 parents worldwide. Currently based out of Alberta Canada In addition to mamapsychologists, we wear many hats. We are also best friends, Registered Psychologists, authors, and, most importantly, moms (to 4 kids aged 6 and under) who struggled significantly in the postpartum period. From months-long NICU stay to birth trauma and postpartum anxiety—we truly have experienced many of the topics we talk about! Between the two of us we have training and experience in EMDR, trauma, child and adolescent psychology, theraplay, maternal mental health, perinatal mental health, birth trauma, pregnancy loss, infertility, somatic experiencing, and more. We have over 20 years of combined experience in the mental health field. We pride ourselves on sharing real life parenting experiences and struggles (with a dash of humour) to share the ups and downs to help parents worldwide feel less alone. When we aren’t working in our private practices or burning the midnight oil running mamapsychologists you will most likely find us with our families. Caitlin is often spending her time cheering her kids on at the skating rink with a coffee in hand. Chelsea can most often be found on her family farm running after her children chasing all their farm animal friends.

Mold can be a very scary and overwhelming topic for “Doctor Moms” to learn about. Yet even though complex, it shouldn’t be a topic to shy away from. Parents deserve to have the knowledge to advocate for optimal detection, testing, and remediation so they can ensure a safe home for their families. 

In today’s episode, Dr. Elana interviews mold expert, Brian Karr, to share her personal story about buying a home that got flooded during escrow and how Brian helped support Dr. Elana each step of the way. We hope her story can be a teaching opportunity for other families to learn how to advocate and find solutions so they too can go to bed at night knowing they are living in a safe home. 

Brian Karr is a second-generation indoor environmental consultant who specializes in working with hypersensitive individuals with complex chronic medical conditions. He helps individuals and families to understand if mold, mycotoxins, or other indoor pathogens exist in their homes that may be contributing to their health conditions, and how to remedy those issues.

Brian has become a mold & biotoxin expert to many medical practitioners across the country and has helped over 5,000 hypersensitive individuals worldwide to create healthier living environments that have allowed their doctors to help them get better.

Brian is the Co-Founder of We Inspect, the host of #moldfinders: RADIO and an expert at identifying indicators of mold growth. Including but not limited to strategic sampling, validating, and developing remedial strategies for mold growth and biotoxin production in all areas of a home or building including walls, floors, ceilings, crawl spaces, basements, attics, and HVAC systems.

If you want to equip yourself with the most up-to-date mold information - this is the episode for you!

Topics Discussed:

  • Dr. Elana’s story of how she advocated for mold detection, testing, and remediation in her home

  • The many deceiving mold practices you want to avoid

  • 5 things to look for to detect a water leak and possible mold

  • When air samples work and when they don’t work

  • The pros and cons of ERMI testing and interpretation mistakes

  • Why traditional fogging doesn’t get rid of mold

  • Why you should never use or rely on chemicals to kill mold

  • Best remediation practices 

  • Options to consider if you are currently exposed to mold and not sure where to start!
